The Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns are at Mother Nature’s mercy as the fate of their Week 11 contest hangs in the balance as a massive snowstorm makes its way toward upstate New York this week.

Accuweather.com is assessing however much six feet of snow could be coming to the district

and a lake impact snow warrning will be active from 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, through 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20 - - the specific time the Bills and Browns are planned to start off.

Boss NFL Representative Brian McCarthy advised ProFootballTalk on Wednesday that the association keeps on checking the climate and has "been in touch with the two clubs

He didn't uncover whether the association is thinking about moving the game out of Bison. Another choice is delay it to one or the other Monday or Tuesday.

Obviously, that choice is not great for NFL plan producers as the Bills are set to play in Detroit on Thanksgiving Day.

The NFL has moved games in the past due to winter weather. Most notably, the Vikings-Eagles game set for Sunday Night Football in late December 2010 was bumped to Tuesday night due to a blizzard.

A more recent example of a game being impacted due to weather is the 2017 AFC playoffs when an ice storm delayed the start of a Steelers-Chiefs playoff game from 1:05 p.m. ET to 8:30 p.m. ET.
